During the economic slowdown of the Chinese economy incubators are playing an increasingly stronger role. The events are part of the Sino-German dialogue from two perspectives: one from the institutional perspective of the universities and research institutions and secondly, from the perception of conversions and new buildings for business incubators in Germany and China. Professional speakers were especially chosen to promote and initialize the discussion between the guests and the host. The different concepts in Germany and China will initialize the intercultural dialogue. The events are designed that three Chinese and three German perspectives in short keynote speeches are presented (max. 6-8 min. each). This will show different positions and lead to an intercultural dialogue between the representatives of the public universities, the private sector and the guests.
